The Turnbull government is out of energy

Not only did we not save $200 a year as Abbott promised but energy prices have doubled since the Coalition scrapped the carbon tax; now, dropping subsidies for renewables is the latest thought bubble from the Nationals. John Passant reports in Independent Australia. Comments on the IA site please.

People will die this winter because of Turnbull government actions

Mr Kelly and Mr Turnbull, people will die this winter, but not because of renewables, writes John Passant in Independent Australia.

Blame climate change and privatisation, not renewable energy, for the blackout in South Australia

In Independent Australia on Tuesday I discussed the absurdity of the Turnbull Government’s claims that the SA blackouts were caused by renewables. Click here to get to the link to the full article, in which I raise privatisation and climate change as the real culprits of the blackout. SA blackout: The ‘renewables and Labor did it’ tale

Blackout in South Australia: Australia storms Right into the dark over renewables

A host of conservative politicians, including PM Turnbull, have opportunistically used the South Australian power outage to cast doubt on renewable energy, writes John Passant in Independent Australia.

Capitalism is killing the Great Barrier Reef

Under capitalism profit comes before people and the bleaching on the Barrier Reef is one example of that ‘logic’. That logic traps us in fossil fuel production and for example Australian government approval of the Adani coal mine. We can save the planet, and with it the Barrier Reef, if we get rid of the underlying driver of climate change – capitalism. As climate change and its impacts accelerate, Rosa Luxemburg’s stark reminder that our choice is socialism or barbarism rings even truer.

The failure of COP21 – climate versus capitalism

Joe Sabatini explains the neoliberal mindset behind the UN climate talks in Paris last year–officially called the 21st Congress of the Parties for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP 21–and what the resulting agreement really means for saving the planet, in an article originally written for the January 2016 issue of the revolutionary socialism in the 21st century magazine and published at the rs21 website and republished in Socialist Worker US.

CLIMATE VS CAPITALISM: why we need system change

The globe continues to warm. The recent Paris conference agreement was a sham. We are heading towards 3 – 4 degrees C warming. Why can’t world leaders end their fossil fuel addiction? If you are in Canberra come to this meeting to discuss why we have to change the system, before the system destroys the planet. It is on at 1 pm on Wednesday 17 February in room G 039 in Copland Building at the Australian National University.

Climate activists in Paris defy state ban and police brutality

Protesters filled the streets of Paris on the eve of the United Nations Cop21 climate change summit–despite president Francois Hollande’s best attempts to keep them away writes Dave Sewell in Socialist Worker UK from Paris.
